In this episode of the ACUNS Book Talks Podcast series, Kurt Mills, Senior Lecturer in International Human Rights at the School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Glasgow, joins co-host Alistair Edgar to discuss his latest publication, International Responses to Mass Atrocities in Africa, from the University of Pennsylvania Press. Kurt explains his general interest in the subject of human rights, and increasingly the nexus of human rights and international justice related to situations of mass atrocity crimes. Examining four case studies – Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, and Darfur – he addresses his own variant of ‘R2P’, in this case ‘R2P3’ (the responsibilities to protect, prosecute, and palliate), and discusses the dilemmas that these responsibilities can create as they may not always be complementary. The podcast concludes with Mills’ thoughts on what his analysis implies for the roles and responsibilities of states, humanitarian actors, and the United Nations.
